4 Books That Made Me a Better Cook

April 22nd, 2014 at 6:06 am · Post a comment · 5 Comments

If I had to choose one hobby that has changed my life the most, I’d say reading. Hands down. My mom taught me how to read in our small Chicago kitchen, plastering index cards that read “CAT” and “THE” on our refrigerator with jumbo magnets. While she would cook, I would read. After I mastered […]
